Rams Place Cody Davis on IR

Posted Nov 3, 2017

The Rams placed injured safety Cody Davis on injured reserve Friday morning.

The Rams will be without safety Cody Davis for at least the next eight weeks, as the club placed him on injured reserve Friday morning.

Davis suffered a thigh injury during the Week 6 victory over the Jaguars, and has not practiced since.

In his fifth year out of Texas Tech, Davis has played well in the Rams’ new defensive scheme, recording an interception, a pair of pass breakups, and 22 total tackles in 2017.

With the new IR rules implemented this year, teams can activate two players from injured reserve, but only after they have spent eight weeks on the list. Teams also do not have to designate a player to return when he is placed on injured reserve. In theory, Davis would be eliglbe to return just before the end of Los Angeles' season.

Aside from Davis, the Rams have four players currently on IR: defensive lineman Dominique Easley, tight end Temarrick Hemingway, wide receiver Bradley Marquez, and running back Leonard Tillery.

With the move, Los Angeles currently has 52 players on its active roster. Head coach Sean McVay will likely address Davis’ situation — and who may take the 53rd roster spot — at his media session following Friday’s practice.
